Hey,
Anyone have some advice?? I've recently tried several times to get some in cockpit videos with my go pro hero 3's of just after sunset and before sunrise. All of them come out grainy to the point of "not worth it." I've seen some on you tube at night from small cockpit to airliners that come out beautifully crisp and sharp. I have the hero 3's and the only adjustment I'm aware of is the settings of 1080-60 etc. Any suggestions.

The newer gopros have significantly better low-light capabilities and config options. If you know someone who has a Hero 6 run them side my side and compare.

Thanks. I'll have to give that a try. I did do a little online digging. Seems only thing I can do with these is to set the FPS to 30 instead of 60. Fun playing with this stuff.
